As seen in +Financial Standard today: A new survey from Mentor Education and Core Data has revealed that 75% of financial advisers support a bachelor of financial planning over a related bachelor's degree.

The survey of over 500 financial advisers, including 400 financial planners, 86 accountants and 54 mortgage brokers, found that 55% of respondents believe a degree in financial planning will professionalise the industry, with a further 49.4% believing it will improve the confidence of consumers in seeking financial advice.

Have the post budget blues? Read what Mentor Education's Michael Sill had to say about "Jobs and Growth", and why this budget is akin to Samuel Becket’s absurd masterpiece 'Waiting for Godot'.

"There is no question to me that a framework with an entry-level, nationally recognised higher education qualification must underpin the provision of quality professional financial advice." writes Dr. Jim Taggart, in his contribution to Mentor Education's blog, Mentor Adviser, today.

"Not one of the 43 higher education institutions in Australia who provide financial planning courses offers a full Bachelor of Financial Planning degree – but they should."
Having been involved in the financial planning sector for nearly 30 years, I have an immense personal interest in the current debate over changes required by the industry to position it as a true profession in the post Future of Financial Advice (FOFA) and Life Insurance Reform (LIF) era.

In comments made to AccountantsDaily, James Lynch, group operations manager, Mentor Education, noted a “steady increase” in RG146 course applications as the deadline looms closer.

“It’s growing more and more. Certainly with tax season out of the way, things are really starting to pick up”, he said.

Mr Lynch also noted that many accountants are taking advantage of this opportunity and choosing to employ a holistic approach to their studies, educating themselves in issues of managed investments and life insurance in addition to the RG146 education and compliance courses that relate solely to accountant-specific services.
